Authentication and E-Reserve

Please note that in order to access electronic articles through the library’s databases, users are required to authenticate both on and off campus.

With E-reserve articles, even when logged into D2L Brightspace in one browser, i.e. Chrome or Firefox, users may still be prompted to sign in again when accessing an e-Reserve article. This is because ARES (the system housing e-Reserve articles) often defaults to IE (Internet Explorer) when opening articles, even when the user is already logged in under another browser.

This change was implemented to increase security for library electronic resources.
